When CoH UK DeLuxe edition was listed originally, it was mistakenly at 80p; the price was perhaps intended to be £80. I ordered 5 copies; and they promtly arrived invoiced at £4 for all five! Amazon did honour, despite several people making the error known to them before they were processed. So I'd bang in a few orders and see what arrives...

I'm sure Parmastahir, who regularly updates this forum on his Tolkien calendar collecting (over in the 'Calendar' part of the forum), would be more than happy to advise you on where to sell (and who to perhaps).

Either that or eBay. Since I don't seriously collect calendars I'll leave value & collectability to those who know more...

Good stuff...

I'm not suggesting the review copy I have is any different from any other Billing copies of The Silmarillion; it is identical as far as I can see. But it is a Billing copy, and I was just curious (if it were possible to determine) how pre-publication it was. Likewise if dates could be put on the Clowes dummy copies it could help build a clearer picture of printing priority between different printers i.e. the old Clowes were in production first as they had to be shipped abroad chestnut.

Rowns, a US HoME copy of Lays just went on eBay for about £30; it was some sort of uncorrected proof copy (as you mention)...

Remy, can I get that 1998 Silmarillion 'Review' copy of you have?
